“What a miracle life is, and how whimsical that in all their wonder and their pain, their confusion and their joy, human beings had the idea to create teddy bears to keep them company and help them make it through the hard times.”  How poignant these words were in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on America on 11th September 2001. 

14 years ago, the humble teddy bear was there again to give a comforting hug to the thousands of people for whom life would never be the same again.  And so, each year, the Bears in the Windows remember the day when the clear blue skies of a busy weekday morning turned to to smoky grey and New York’s famous skyline and the whole world changed forever.
